    New to Mac Pro!
    Hey All

    Getting my new Mac Pro on Friday (Hopefully sooner) just wondering if anyone can give me a rundown of what programs on Mac are equal to on PC.

    IE
    Outlook = Mail
    Windows Media Player = ITunes?

    It may be easier if you told us what programs you are used to using on your Windows computer...and then we can suggest the closest Mac program there is (if an equivalent or semi-equivalent exists).

    Yes, it would save a lot of time if you just told us what you were looking for. There are thousands (hundreds of thousands) of apps for Windows and Mac. Listing the functional equivalent of them all would take a lifetime.

    Here's a list that may help, however:

    PC to Mac, programs to apps - Ask Geneva (about Mac)

    The list is out of date on some points but it's a good general guide. There's also Switch 101 you may want to check out.
